Internet: Course Goals:

A. Students can perform algebraic, geometric and technological operations required for success in calculus. B. Students understand fundamental concepts of integral calculus and infinite series. C. Students develop and improve analytical thinking for problem solving, both manual and using technology. D. Students prepare for success in mathematics and disciplines which rely on mathematics, and for Calculus III in particular. Topical Objectives (with goals addressed). Preface: Students will be able to

1. correctly perform integration techniques including substitutions, integration by parts, partial fractions, numerical integration, reference to tabulated integrals, solution of improper integrals (A) 2. choose the appropriate technique for a given integration problem (B,C) 3. use definite integrals for problem solving, such as determining arc length, surface area volume, and average value of a function (A) 4. understand how partitioning can be used to solve problems, and how that partitioning leads to definite integrals (B,C) 5. determine characteristics of infinite sequences, such as alternation, monotonicity, convergence or divergence (A) 6. determine convergence or divergence of infinite series (A)

7. determine intervals of convergence of power series (A) 8. choose the appropriate convergence test for a given infinite sequence, series, or power series (B,C) 9. use Taylor series to approximate functions at a point or on an interval (A) 10. perform elementary error analysis, especially for Taylor approximations (A) 11. understand the relation and differences between infinite sequences and infinite series (B) 12. understand the relation and differences between regular infinite series and power series (B) 13. understand convergence of power series and their use in approximating functions (B) 14. translate points and curves between rectangular and polar coordinates (A,D) 15. describe curves parametrically and plot parametric curves (A,D) 16. perform calculus operations on functions written in polar and parametric form, such as finding the line tangent to a polar or parametric curve (A,D) General Objectives (with goals addressed). Preface: Students will be able to

17. carry over and apply knowledge from Calculus I, such as differentiation, L-Hopitals Rule, the use and properties of transcendental functions, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus (A,B) 18. identify when certain theorems apply, and if not, identify what hypothesis is violated (B) 19. check results (produced both manually and with technology) and recognize those which are obviously false (C) 20. recognize alternate forms of a correct result (C) 21. use proper mathematical notation and vocabulary (D) 22. write clear and detailed solutions to assigned problems and computer exercises (D)
